Completing high-ranking personnel work, fine-tuning the leadership apparatus

Lawmakers elected Mr. Tran Thanh Man Chairman of the National Assembly and Mr. To Lam State President for the 2021-2026 term. Deputies also elected a NA Vice Chair and members of the NA Standing Committee and approved appointments for some high-ranking positions.

Deputy Ta Van Ha of Quang Nam province said: "The election of important personnel to lead the country demonstrates that the will and responsibility of National Assembly deputies match the will of the Party and the people."

Effective legislative work

This session, with the largest legislative workload since the beginning of the term, passed 11 laws and 21 resolutions and discussed 11 other draft laws. The National Assembly agreed to enforce the Land Law, the Housing Law, the Real Estate Business Law, and the Law on Credit Organizations from August 1, 2024, rather than January 1, 2025. Policies like salary reform and extending the 2% VAT tax reduction until the end of this year demonstrate the flexibility of the National Assembly in meeting the needs of voters and businesses.

Deputy Nguyen Thi Thanh Cam of Tien Giang province said: " I was impressed with the efficient program schedule despite the large workload. Some bills were passed unanimously, demonstrating careful preparation by the Government and the oversight role of the NA Committees and the NA Standing Committee. We look forward to the enforcement of important decisions like salary reform and support mechanisms."

National Assembly's dynamism, responsibility in international affairs

Lawmakers also ratified the Protocol on the UK’s accession to the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

Vu Hai Ha, Chairman of the National Assembly's Foreign Affairs Committee, said: "Ratifying the UK's accession protocol makes Vietnam one of the first six countries to do so. This will strengthen trade and investment ties with the UK, affirm Vietnam's regional and global role, and boost socio-economic development, legal improvements, and business competitiveness."

National Assembly deputies believe that through the combined efforts of the legislature, the Government, and relevant agencies, the new policies will soon be implemented, contributing significantly to achieving Vietnam’s socio-economic development goals for 2024 and the 2021-2026 term.
